Is the front cylinder firing? put a spark tester on it or pull the plug and ground it to the motor head or something and roll it over and see if it fires. If not then chances are the ignition is bad.

Changing spark plugs will not affect compression unless you put in the wrong reach plug and it hit and damaged a piston. Sounds more like stuck valves, bent pushrods, broken rockers, or cam drive problems.

I have a ktm 250 sx 2-stroke. It has a new piston and new cylinder. bike ran great before it needed the repairs. Cranks on first kick. Run good but it leaks the pre-mix everytime i ride it and it won'


Where is it leaking from? If its leaking, that's more than likely why it doesn't run right, the fuel/air mixture is off. Also, I wouldn't continue to run it until the leak is fixed as it may damage the motor from not lubricating properly.

I have a 99 ktm 250 sx. Had to get cylinder replated and a new piston. I put the bike back together and oil was leaking from the front lower end of the cylinder and i wont idle. Took the bike back ap


If there is a leak in the head gasket it will never run properly. Maybe the carburetor is plugged if it has sat for a while. The gas/oil mixture can go bad over time. The leak could be from a loose gas line. Or possibly even oil dripping from the oil filter if you just cleaned and re-oiled it.

2000 VZ800 marauder runs mostly on one cylinder


It seems there is too much of fuel going into the non firing cylinder thus the blackish spark plug, recheck the float level to that carburater and also check the valve clearance.

Sounds like you may have fould plugs replace with new NGK's. If still no start ckeck spark. two old plugs taped together or even tach welded together makes excellent spark check tool. No open cylinder no shot of air fuel mix to light by plug to fin method (electodes aposing each other) plug two cylinders plug wires and turn motor watching for spark and color of spark.
